Rig Rundown: Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis and Lou Barlow [2017]

One of rock’s loudest guitar-and-bass duos catalogs their ferocious setups.

During a recent tour, J was able to jam with Peter Buck’s Rickenbacker Model 620/12 for a few days, so after getting the G.A.S bug, he bought a similar 620/12 online from a gentleman in Louisiana. Even though it wasn’t used to record the song “Love is…” on Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, Lou requested J use it on that song in concert, because he felt the 12-string sounded so good during a soundcheck.
